Welcome to The Greg Bennett show, an AnyQuestion podcast hosted by Former Professional Olympic and World Champion Athlete Greg Bennett.

Greg chats with the world's greatest athletes and high performers to find out how they got to the top of the world and how they are able to sustain it.

In this week’s episode, Greg chats with one of the most successful middle-distance triathletes, Rudy von Berg.

2019 saw a breakthrough performance and a World Championship podium for the fast-rising Rodolphe Von Berg. But, when you are already part of a triathlon dynasty long before you turn 30, there are still plenty more chapters to be written in the sporting history of RVB.

The sport of triathlon truly runs through the veins of the Von Berg family. Rodolphe Sr continues to be one of the best in the world in his category, still racing with success into his 60s. With his son’s progress to date, the dynasty has many years to run yet.

“My earliest memory of him racing was in Kona at the IRONMAN World Championship in 1998 when I was 5 years old,” says ‘Junior’, who is now doing a fine job of forging his own direction in the sport, a path which he hopes in due course will lead him to the top step of the podium on the Big Island.

“As a kid, you definitely tell yourself, ‘One day I’ll be here with the top pros to try and win it!’ Kona will always be the number one race to win for me in my career.”

While success on Alii’s Drive may be a few years off yet - he’s yet to even start over the iron distance - his rapid progress, race wins and Championship titles over the Middle Distance confirm that his career path is heading firmly in the right direction.
